Two grandfathers from Staten Island have completed a very impressive challenge to raise money for African drinking water awareness — they biked across the country.

On Monday they returned home to an emotional family reunion.

Greg Hansen is working with the Christian humanitarian organization “World Vision” to bring those wells to Kenya.  He’s already raised more than 96-thousand dollars.  His goal is $137,000, or 10 wells.
